Warning: Not all essential oil brands are the same quality. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that the oil you are using is made from pesticide-free plants grown in optimal conditions. Also, the brand should be a 100% pure, high-quality essential oil that does not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to find a brand that is reputable.

My cat has recently become an outdoor cat. I was slow to react to this change and ignored the still small voice that kept insisting: "fleas, fleas". I woke up one morning with my legs covered in flea bites, of course.

I got out my Peppermint, Lemongrass and Eucalyptus Globulus, five drops each in a vaporizer and sprayed every single surface in my house that could harbour fleas. My duvet and bed got a real hefty dose. I sprayed the sofas, blankets, chairs, laundry basket etc. and my bed three more times that day and twice the next day. No more fleas!

I washed all my clothes adding Eucalyptus Globulus to the rinse. As to my legs and sundry other bits covered in bites, they got lathered in Lavender oil and Eucalyptus Globulus alternately and that stopped the itching. As my cats have always reacted badly to essential oils, I had to give my cat an alopathic solution. But the essential oils did the trick for me and my house!
